The 2012 New York Film Festival | Portraits

For the second year in a row, I was able to capture some images at the New York Film Festival Press Conferences. Despite my limited screening schedule, I did see quite a few films, including three films (Holy Motors, Beyond The Hills and No) that I consider to be among the best of the year. This year’s crop of pictures is director heavy, but what can I say, I only made it to the movies I needed to see. So, here is a selective look at the fantastic 50th Anniversary of The New York Film Festival…

The 2011 New York Film Festival | Portraits

It was a great year at The New York Film Festival, but what else is new? It remains my favorite film festival, a near-perfect annual survey of the kind of cinema I love. I will be reproducing my NYFF coverage here as part of the migration from indieWIRE, but writing aside, I was excited this year to break out my camera during a few of the NYFF press conferences and grab some photos. I didn’t make it to every conference (although I only missed a few), but I really enjoyed taking pictures this year. Lots of fun. Enjoy!
